I'm very proud of this bike, it was my first fixed gear. I bought a full '80's Schwinn World Sport took it down to the bare metal. From there I repainted the bike and built it back up. The only original parts are the fork and frame, every other piece was individually picked. The wheels were even custom built. Took about three months to get everything together and the money but I can't wait to start building another.

i've been on the fence as to whether or not i should paint my fork blades white, this made me want to.

Bit of flare

I felt the same way, but I think the white forks make the bike a little unique despite the bit generic paint job.

yeah it works really well

yeah it works really well with the white on the seat tube.

i just painted my fork white with appliance epoxy. that's some cool stuff. probably as good as a powder coat


The black and white scheme is coming along nicely! Can't wait to see it all put together!
